    O LORD, in your strength the king rejoices, and in Your salvation how greatly he exults! You have given him his heart's desire and have not withheld the request of his lips. Psalms 21:1 ESVI was scared when the call came because I had grown up on a farm and had no formal education in computers, but ...

    But Rahab the prostitute and her father's household and all who belonged to her, Joshua saved alive. And she has lived in Israel to this day, because she hid the messengers whom Joshua sent to spy out Jericho. Joshua 6:25 ESVThe least of the least, Rahab was always looked down on by the other women ...

The Weed Eater

  • Out of the same mouth comes blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water? Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh water. James 3:10 WEB

    Hot, tired, and aggravated, I pulled the starting rope on the weed eater for the forty third time. Once again it sputtered, ran a second, and died. After being primed, choked, and pulled until I had blisters that had risen up and busted on my hands, the stubborn little torture device still refused to run for more than a second at a time.

    As Esau with Jacob, I comforted myself with the thought of destroying it. Thoughts ran through my mind of bending it around a nearby tree. Though completely frustrated, I felt a tiny inkling to pray which had to be the Holy Spirit. I finally paused and simply said:

    'Lord Jesus, please help me with this.'

    With a deep breath, I pulled the start cord one more time. It started and ran perfectly. I finished cutting the grass without any more problems, wishing that I had prayed sooner. The help that we need is just a prayer away, but so many times we struggle on in our own strength.

    Be sure to involve God in your life today on every level. He cares about the little things that upset us. I have found that if it matters to you, it matters to Him. That does not mean that you will never have to endure something, but it does mean that you do not have to endure everything, if you will only take the time to ask. He helped me start the weed eater when I stopped and asked Him, but not before.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for being there for me. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I choose to put my trust in You. Remind me to call on You instead of becoming frustrated today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen. This is one of my many favorite scriptures. It got me through brokenness during my transition from an abusive relationship, finishing my first degree and life in general. It gives me faith in God's abilities to help me, his love and his belief in my capabilities. As a result I am encouraged to do what I don't/didn't think I could do. I thank you Father for your unfailing love for me. Thank you Pastor Dion for this reassuring devotional. Have a blessed day in Jesus name.

Amen! We are truly brothers Pastor Dion ;) Sometime I will completely frustrate myself beforeI ask for help, instead of just asking when I see there are issues, You'd think I would know by now :) Thank You Jesus for being there for us and that if it matters to me it matters to you help us to remember to call upon you.
